Gene: NRL (neural retina leucine zipper) Homo sapiens
Symbol: NRL
Name: neural retina leucine zipper
Description: Exhibits several functions, including DNA-binding transcription activator activity, RNA polymerase II-specific; leucine zipper domain binding activity; and transcription coactivator activity. Involved in positive regulation of transcription by RNA polymerase II. Localizes to the cytosol and nucleoplasm. Implicated in retinitis pigmentosa and retinitis pigmentosa 27.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: D14S46E; neural retina-specific leucine zipper protein; neural retinal-specific leucine zipper; NRL-MAF; RP27
